HUNTINGTON, Oregon (KLIX)-A Caldwell man was killed when a pair of wheels came off a trailer and crashed into his cab Monday on the interstate in Oregon. According to Oregon State Police, on September 6, 50-year-old James Green was driving a Freightliner east on Interstate 84 near Huntington when a pair of wheels broke off from the axle on a trailer being pulled by a truck headed west.
